Divorced couples are now more common than married couples. Divorce is the new norm because marriage has increasingly become an irrelevant concept since the 1950's (less so when children are involved, but still....)
"The divorce rate is still high in the U.S. at 53%. But Spain, Portugal, Luxembourg, the Czech Republic, and Hungary are worse off with divorce rates higher than 60%. Belgium has the highest rate of divorce in this data set at a staggering 70%. The lowest official rate is in Chile with 3%.May 25, 2014."
